Basil-Peach Chicken Breasts

    Looked fabulous in SL but the taste just wasn't there. Very bland. My peaches were ripe but maybe if they were riper? Added sugar to give it some taste but just wasn't worth the effort.

    Needed more salt, personal preference. The chicken was moist; I cooked it for 25 min., at 15 it was not quite done. Mine did not get as brown as the picture, but nothing ever looks like the pictures... I wonder if you used a kitchen torch just before serving might help with the color and Carmelite the peaches a bit....? My hubby liked it, so we will have it again!

    This would be a 5-star recipe if the sauce was not water-thin. The taste of the sauce makes the recipe, but the consistency keeps it from being something you would serve to guests. We served it with jasmine rice and YUM!

    This was super bland. It was edible. Otherwise I would have given it one star. It needs more flavor. I will not ever make this again. I'm going to try and turn my leftovers into chicken soup and add some chicken stock, noodles, etc.

    Fresh, not great.

    Delicious and light; perfect for summer! Refreshing flavors! But I think you must sautée chicken much longer than recipe says. Will still be moist!

    Solid. The chicken was moist. The sauce was tasty. Added some cinnamon to the chicken before finishing it off in the oven. I would make this again!

    My family enjoyed this but like others mentioned, the sauce had a water consistency. Didn't have fresh ginger so I used ground ginger. I didn't feel like making a side dish so I served it with a left over pasta side of elbows, basil pesto, halved grape tomatoes and spinach (similar to another Cooking Light side) . I'd make this again because we liked the flavor and peaches.
